Primitive by Mark Nykanen
ARC - 186 pages
published October, 2009
A "neo-primitive" cult, possessing secret government documents filled with terrifying information about global warming, kidnaps a famous fashion model and holds her hostage, forcing her to act as their spokesperson. As time runs out, her estranged daughter allies with a dangerous activist group to rescue her, while battling dark agendas from the government and Big Oil.
I won an ARC of Primitive in a give away. Although it looked like it might have some promise in the beginning - after the kidnapping happened it really jumped the shark for me. I'm willing to suspend disbelief for a novel, but this really was more propaganda than plot. I can't explain the high ratings for this one. It's not worth your time. Not recommended
